Unhappy MSN Messenger with Iptables Again!

hello there!
I have a suse linux, for firewall and proxy.
I want use msn messenger in the M$ Network but it fails to login.
I try open some ports but it dont work.
What can I do?

I try many things and none of them work.
I found this:

#-MSN Messenger ports
$IPTABLES -A tcp_packets -p TCP -s 0/0 --dport 6891:6901 -j allowed
$IPTABLES -A tcp_packets -p TCP -s 0/0 --dport 1863 -j allowed

Can it work?
If yes, where i put that? In the firwall config file?
if some one know anything.

thanks ppuru!

but, how can i do that?
dont forget, i am very newbie.

can this prevent the users to send messages to me?
because the message other->me is only incoming.

and if i open the msn messenger ports?
it will work, or not?
